Leaking red wine where my heart once was -
Surrounded by 100 lovers
I am dissolving
like the foam on the shoreline.
I never needed you
but I always wanted you.
Emptiness is just a place of possibility.
I have cried
by a sea of strange faces
over the days we spent
and the days we parted.
Steeping in loss and acceptance all over again.
Isn't it puzzling how much space another person can take up even when they are not around?
we know best when there is no choice but to let go.
I would rather stare at loss in the eyes
and watch the moments
we colored in fade to black.
The taste leaves me wanting more
even when I feel
my blue eyes
I skipped on honey in my coffee
and the saltwater tastes sweet again.
I am wearing new fabric on my hips,
new scents on my wrists,
and new lips on my neck.
Underneath a sky that no long falls for you.
